Middle Cyclone

Neko Case is an awesome force to be reckoned with, disarming us completely with her fifth studio album, Middle Cyclone. In a clear, husky voice she moves through alternative country and gospel vibes sung with gripping, often comical, lyrics about life and love, especially.

An exceptional singer/songwriter and a strong, exceedingly clever woman, Case showcases earth and animal imagery and bleeding, heartfelt poetry. Her songs, some actually tracked in a barn on her farm in Virginia, seem to be creatures themselves, sometimes with a lonely piano or wind chime subtly carrying their voices. And with a few more pop songs than usual, Case offers us some catchy refrains to hold onto during turbulent times.
